No. 10  Unique Sami-knives

      The knives on this page were not made by me, but by one of my knife-making freinds Hans Henrik Hansen. Hans Henrik makes Sami-knives unlike anyone else can. His work is highly regarded and he has won innummerable knife-competitions both in Denmark and abroad. He even has won 1st prize in the homelands of the Sami-knives, Norway and Sweden. 

        Hans Henrik uses traditional materials and methods in his work: Masur-birch, caribou antler, birch-bark, carobou lether, 
and often a blade he has hand-forged himself. The beautiful decoration is carved using a very small, but extremely sharp knife, a process which requires incredible precision and patience.
